what do you mean it didn't work? did you use the anydvd ripper? the anydvd ripper outputs files that work 100% with dvd shrink.
anydvd and dvd43 are conflicting drivers so its important to completely uninstall one without the other.
please explain your "anydvd doesn't work that well" comment. if you explain it we can help. if you just say it doesn't work and leave it at that then, well...you're stuck with no solution. ehichever way you prefer i guess.
